WPAN Wireless PC Connectivity
The FC series is equipped with a built-in short distance wireless data transmitter which allows for a cable-free connection to your Windows PC, Laptop, or Tablet. Every FC force gauge is supplied with a USB dongle WPAN receiver which makes the connection setup quick and easy. The wireless module is also compatible with most WPAN devices found in Laptops and Tablets.
Removable MicroSD Memory
Every Torbal force gauge is equipped with a MicroSD expansion slot which increases available memory via the insertion of a MicroSD card. All data results and measurements are saved directly to the SD card in a “.txt” format. Stored data can be seamlessly transferred to your PC by simply removing the SD card form the force gauge, and inserting it to your Desktop or Laptop.
USB, RS232, & I/O Interface
The force gauge can be easily connected to a computer via the USB port, which is standard on all Torbal force gauges. Data can be transferred directly to the PC, and measurements can be recorded and analyzed in real time with the TORBAL FM software.
The display automatically adjusts to the orientation of the force gauge. The need for disassembling the force gauge and manually rotating the display panel is completely eliminated. The screen flips as soon as the vertical direction of the force gauge changes.
Stats and Analytics
Each application mode of the force gauge includes a statistical analysis of recorded samples and force peaks. Statistics include total number of samples, max, min, average, standard deviation and more. Calculations can be analyzed on the force gauge and saved to a MicroSD card, or transferred to a computer for further interpretation.
The Torbal force gauge was engineers specifically for on-the-go applications and field testing. The design of the gauge allows it to be easily maneuvered with one hand while comfortably operating the keypad. The device is extremely rugged and can withstand continuous testing in the most demanding applications.
200% Overload Protected
Torbal force gauges are overload protected up to 200% at full scale. Every force gauge includes a used capacity indicator which shows the amount of the capacity used during force measurements. It allows the user to avoid exceeding the maximum capacity of the force gauge. The indicator is particularly useful when maxing out the force gauge capacity with heavy loads.
Main keys and buttons of the force gauge are arranged in a circular pattern and are easily reached with your thumb while holding the force gauge in the same hand. Adequate number of keys create a more intuitive keypad, and guarantee a long operating life of the unit.
Onscreen Graph and Histogram
Peaks and samples are displayed on an X, Y graph or as a histogram. The graph displays recorded peaks and can be scrolled to view recorded measurements during the test. The histogram shows the number of samples taken at different intervals of force.
Analog Output and Input Modes
The threshold output mode enables the analog output port by sending voltage level signals which can be used for signaling or controlling external peripherals that can connect with the force gauge. The output mode can be used in combination with Programmable Pass / Fail Thresholds Monitoring. Input mode allows an external button or a pedal to be used as a trigger for starting force measurements and taking samples. OUTPUT Ampacity: I max=25mA / U nom=24V (open collector type, emitters connected– GND) | INPUT Voltage Range IN (+) / IN (-): U in = 12-18V / I in max=50Ma.
